This native of Bordeaux, France is elegant by nature, featuring smooth tannins and expressing freshness and sweetness. In its Merlot, Casillero del Diablo captured all this elegance in a smooth wine with low astringency and aromas of blackberries, strawberries, and raspberries, complemented by notes of chocolate, vanilla, and blackcurrants.
